"MODERN DAY LYNCHINGS"
Kody (Pretty Boy) Ingham (pictured above) was found hanging from a tree in front of his white girlfriends house on July 15, 2013 (the same night as the George Zimmerman verdict) in Athens, Texas. it was chalked up as a suicide and no investigation ensued, even though two hours prior he called his mother to pick him up from the site he died at. no newspaper article, just a four sentence obituary in the local papers and his family has been trying hard to make any mainstream news channel blow up the story to find the killers.
Roy Veal was found hanging in Woodville, Mississippi in 2004. he originally lived in Seattle and went to his mother’s home in Woodville to help her fight for the rights to their family land against a white man. Oil had been found underneath the land.
Roy’s head was covered with a pillow case and burned papers of the documented proof he had to prove his mothers’ ownership were found burned at his feet. He was later found hanging from a tree. His death was ruled a suicide.
His family is still trying to get attention for the case 
Reynard Johnson, 17, was found hanging from a tree on his front lawn on June 16, 2000 in Kokomo, Mississippi. His death was ruled a suicide even though the belt around his neck was not his. Authorities said since no hate group left a message by the body, there was nothing to investigate. Family members said the motive was his relationship with a white girl, he was constantly being harassed because of this.

……….

Wtf?!

Consumers may be barred from suing General Mills for ‘liking’ company on Facebook
Under a new privacy policy, Fortune 500 corporation General Mills claims that anyone who has received anything from it that can be deemed a benefit – even agreeing to “like” it on Facebook – withdraws rights to sue the company.
General Mills, maker of products like Cheerios and brands like Betty Crocker, has added language on its website that warns consumers that if they download company coupons, enter a company contest, or interact with the company in other ways, they will only be able to resolve disputes through informal negotiation with the corporation, or by binding arbitration.
The new terms even hint that simply purchasing General Mills products will bind consumers.

Wild.

If my “Genuine Arsenic Shampoo tm” causes you any problems such as death, you can only sue if you did NOT, Purchase, receive, steal or use this product and were in no way exposed to it.

Chemical safety officials tasked by President Obama to determine whether regulations should change following last April’s explosion in West, Texas, that killed 15 are mulling revisions to ammonium nitrate storage rules and the handling and processing of chemicals

National safety rules governing fertilizer remain unchanged after a fertilizer facility explosion killed 15 people in West, Texas one year ago.

The lack of action comes even after President Barack Obama ordered federal agencies to review chemical safety rules in the wake of the incident. Agency officials say they’re considering revising ammonium nitrate storage rules, as well as changing the chemical handling and processing rules. Any significant changes, they say, will likely take years.

Debate over the ideal safety changes to implement remains ongoing. The Institute of Makers of Explosives believes that storing chemicals in wooden buildings, for example, is an unsafe practice, while the Agricultural Retailers Association argues that switching away from wooden buildings would be too costly. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, meanwhile, has cautioned against adopting new rules before the state completes its investigation of the incident. Perry has not specified when those findings will be released.

Texas State Fire Marshal Chris Connealy told the Wall Street Journalthat his office has identified 26 facilities in the state that store large amounts of fertilizer in conditions that could lead to an explosion similar to the one in West.

Of the 15 people killed in last year’s explosion, 12 were volunteer firefighters responding to the incident. Legislators suggested at a hearing Monday new rules that would force the volunteer fire department to better prepare first responders for chemical emergencies such as the one that struck West.

Didn’t lose anybody important, thus we don’t need change.

the politicians in dc are corrupt because they are all extroverts.  if introverts ran this country we would be so better off

If they were intraverts they’d have their own state.

Anonymous asked: The Koch family of companies employs directly about 60k people. Part of their business philosophy is to allow the workers to keep their earnings. i.e. if a mill operator finds a way to bleach paper cheaper, he will have financial compensation. The Kochs are not anti-worker. They are in fact anti-corporate-cronyism, and actively lobby for the removal of subsidies since they believe in true free markets. Attacking them w/o basis is just childish and counterproductive.

Sounds all well and good.  Now please go ahead and show me where I lack basis and I will either show where the data was found, how it was arrived at if I developed it from separate sources, or apologize.  As I am posting this you will have witnesses that will know from my follow up the validity of what I am saying.  as I hope to be talking to intelligent people, i expect to be treated with the appropriate disdain should i renege.

PS, when i’m wrong at least I’ve learned something new, and that is what life is about.
